- David Constantine
David is the co-founder of Motivation, a charity which works to improve the quality of life of people with mobility impairment. His inspiration to design wheelchairs started when he joined IBM and met industrial designers after completing his degree in Computing & Accounting/Finance. He went on to do his MA in Industrial Design at the Royal College of Art, where he, alongside Simon Gue, designed an award-winning wheelchair for developing countries.
Because David himself is a wheelchair user, due to a diving accident in 1982 when he was 21, his work understandably has a deep personal significance. In 2010, he was awarded an MBE by the Queen for his services to the disabled.
